School-to-Prison Pipeline: Understanding the Relationship Between School Discipline, Dropout, and Incarceration

ID: 4278

The school-to-prison pipeline: an epidemic that is plaguing schools across the nation. Far too often, students are suspended, expelled or even arrested for minor offenses that leave visits to the principals office a thing of the past. Statistics reflect that these policies disproportionately target students of color and those with a history of abuse, neglect, poverty or learning disabilities. The purpose of this workshop is to begin to examine the root causes and repercussions of the school-to-prison pipeline on todays youth; understand the impact race, gender, and poverty have on this epidemic; and empower participants to make changes in their schools and communities.
